"Transform Justice was set up in 2012 by Penelope Gibbs, a former magistrate who had worked (successfully) to reduce child and youth imprisonment in the UK. The charity will help create a better justice system in the UK, a system which is fairer, more open, more humane and more effective. Transform Justice will enhance the system through promoting change – by generating research and evidence to show how the system works and how it could be improved, and by persuading the public to support those changes and practitioners and politicians to make them".
These are laudable aims by any account and are so astutely worded that one would be a fool to simply argue against them. "Transform Justice will enhance the system through promoting change". The question to be put is what kind of change. Below are a few quotes on "change".
